Description:
I'm using MS FTS (Full Text Search) Service on
MS-SQL2K. For some reason, I can't seem to get this query to work for me.

I have a products table of computer related hardware,
sorted out by Category_id (i.e - hp5l and hp6l have a category_id of 6 which is "laser printers"). I want
to output a FTS query (using containstable), but
to output only a maximum of 2 records PER CATEGORY_ID.

The FTS query is working great, it's just the distinct issue causing me problems:

SELECT Product.Product_id,Product.Product_title,Product.Category_id
FROM Product INNER JOIN CONTAINSTABLE(Product,*,SearchTerm,10) AS Ranking
ON Product.Product_id=Ranking.[key] LEFT JOIN Category
ON Product.Category_id=Category.Category_id
WHERE Product.Product_status IS NOT NULL
ORDER BY Ranking.RANK DESC

I need a TSQL query to output a sorted FTS (based on the above query) by rank (desc) and then, "grouped" by Category_id.
Very similiar to what Google does on this link: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Hewlett+Packard
(Notice that ONLY the first 2 results come from Hp.com)

Anyone who knows SQL, that should be easy for you (I guess), I will post perfect feedback on whoever can get this working by tommorow. Let me know what's your bid too, and if you need more information. Thanks!

Michael.
